I started trimming my own beef tenderloin several years ago.
You may ask, “Why is she doing that”?
If you didn’t ask, I’ll tell you anyway.
The beautiful trimmed tenderloin was $14.99 a pound and the untrimmed tenderloin was on sale for $6.99 a pound.
It takes about thirty minutes to trim the roast.
There is one skinny piece of meat that I take off and set aside.
This is what I use to make these sandwiches.
Season the meat with salt and pepper and grill or pan fry just till it is medium rare.
Place it on a pita bread with some hummus, greek yogurt sauce and scallions.
I usually get two nice sandwiches from the thin piece of meat.
The scrapes from the tenderloin I cut up into small pieces and cook them for my dog.
What can be better?
I have a gorgeous roast for $6.99 a pound.
I had a delicious sandwich and the most important thing…
My dog is happy
